BREASTFEEDING Cream Recall

Mommy's Bliss Nipple Cream recall Nursing moms, beware — the Food and Drug Administration just issued a warning to women to stop using Mommy’s Bliss Nipple Cream, because the cream may cause respiratory distress, vomiting and diarrhea in babies. The mixture is supposed to help soothe cracked nipples and the label explicitly says there is no need to remove the cream before nursing, but it contains chlorphenesin and phenoxyethanol, both of which pose a danger to infants.

If your baby is experiencing symptoms – lessened appetite, difficulty awakening, limpness, or changed skin color, call your doctor immediately. Questions about this product or symptoms? Call the FDA’s MedWatch at 800-332-1088.

Questions about breastfeeding or about other ways to deal with cracked or sore nipples? Call your local La Leche League, or the John Muir Women’s Health Center‘s breastfeeding support experts for practical tips and wise advice.

    I never had any complaints about Mommy’s Bliss Nipple Cream. For me it worked great and I know many other women who used it and are very happy with it. I am a fan of natural products for babies and this company has several that are very helpful – one of which is Baby’s Bliss Gripe Water for colic. It does wonders!
